Sump Pump Repair and Testing
Did the last big rainstorm leave your basement under water? In addition to the havoc a flood can cause in your basement, water can do extensive damage to your home’s foundation, leading to major and extremely costly problems down the road. If you need sump pump testing in Delaware or Maryland, call Peninsula today—before the next major storm!
Sump Pump Repair
A working sump pump is crucial during both the summer and the winter, when heavy rainstorms or snow melts can bring a lot of water into your home. Dirt, leaves, toys and other debris can all clog up your sump pump and prevent it from working when you need them. Common sump pump problems we fix at Peninsula include:
- Sump pits clogged with debris
- Weep holes that get clogged
- Check valves in the wrong place
- Dry traps
- Poorly functioning battery backup
Sump Pump Testing & Battery Backups
Sump pumps run almost exclusively during periods of heavy rain or snow melt, which are (hopefully!) few and far between. As a result, it’s important to make sure your pump is reliable in the meantime. Testing your sump pump is fairly easy—locate your pump and pour a few gallons of water into it. It should kick on immediately and flush out the water. For best results, test your sump pump once every few months, particularly in preparation for spring and summer storms. If it doesn’t start up properly, call Peninsula for sump pump repair right away!
In addition, if your home loses power during big storms, it helps to install a sump pump battery backup. This will keep the pump running for a few hours during a storm if the lights go out—an invaluable resource for keeping your home safe!
